Here's what I have for you:
- Smart Render support for DNxHD wrapped in QuickTime was added in Premiere Pro CC
- You must have Avid codecs installed
- No option to check to enable smart rendering is needed, Premiere Pro always tries to smart render by default
The first thing I would check is to see if the DNxHD (QuickTime) codecs are installed or not.
Hi Kevin yes the codecs are installed.
I will admit the difference is a very slight change in luminance but its still there when it shouldn't be. Outputing same file from Avid does not cause it and is the same. As does exporting it in the MXF container so there must be something wrong with the Quicktime encoder.
To avoid gamma shifts on the DNxHD Quicktime. Select in the Codec Settings 601 Color levels.
